    52: Call-In Show

    On Episode 52: Call-In Show, we have... you guessed it... a call-in show! The past few weeks of bad weather in Pennsylvania have prevented Tony and Brian from getting together in-studio to record new interviews, so this week as a special episode we are releasing a truckload of fun voicemails left for us by fellow drivers and listeners on our voicemail call-in line. We hope you enjoy these one-sided conversations, and feel free to leave us your own voicemail at 515-585-MERK (6375)!

    51: From Rock Bottom To Trucking

    51: From Rock Bottom To Trucking

    In Episode 51: From Rock Bottom To Trucking, Tony and Brian chat with Zach, a brand new Class A trucker. Zach is still wet behind the ears in the trucking industry, and he shares what led him to truck driving, and how he got to where he is now. It's been a long, hard road for Zach, who hit rock bottom when he admitted he was a alcoholic. Since that point, he has turned his life around, thoroughly enjoys his job, and is grateful for all that he has! Zach talks about overcoming his addiction, and the impact it had on his life. He also tells us some great stories from a new driver's point of view, offering perspectives that are not only entertaining but also encouraging. So sit back and buckle up as Zach tries to navigate through the fog as best as he can!

    49: Crazy EMT Stories

    49: Crazy EMT Stories

    In Episode 49: Crazy EMT Stories, Tony and Brian talk with Josh, a former EMT out of West Virginia. Being an EMT comes with different battles: from high pressure situations of life-and-death to mundane everyday tasks, there's no question that this job requires a lot of attention and focus. In his time as an EMT, Josh has seen several interesting and - at times - messy situations... namely, an unbelievable amount of poop! The job it isn't always so stressful, however, and Josh also shares with us some of the lighter side of his career. So buckle up and grab a shovel as Josh clears out all the poop on this one.

    48: Ubering Miss Daisy

    48: Ubering Miss Daisy

    In Episode 48: Ubering Miss Daisy, Tony and Brian chat with Alicia, a former driver for Uber. As an Uber driver, you need to have a lot of patience and a great attitude to handle all kinds of situations, no matter what comes your way, and Alicia certainly has both. She's had her fair share of "stranger than fiction" moments, from blue wigged drag queens, to completely wasted truckers, to aliens inside of a man! Alicia has experienced so much on the road, so sit back and buckle up as she takes us on an Uber ride you'll never forget!
